Video production styles continue to evolve in response to the rapid and tremendous growth in visual communication. In this fast-changing environment, the need is for equipment that meets the crucial demands for both higher productivity and greater creativity in professional video production.
Since its launch in 1996, Sony DVCAM equipment has been satisfying these demands. It has brought many notable benefits: excellent picture and sound quality, high-performance editing capabilities, system versatility and professional reliability to mention a few. Based on the DVCAM format, the DSR range of VTRs and Camcorders covers a wide range of applications from field acquisition through editing to transmission.
Now, two new models join the DSR family, the DSR-1800* Editing Recorder and the DSR-1600** Editing Player. These VTRs provide excellent performance in an editing environment. They have a full range of analog and digital interfaces, a responsive search dial function, and many other powerful features. A key advantage is their playback and editing compatibility with DV (25 Mb/s) family formats, including consumer DV (SP mode) and DVCPRO. Filled with professional features and offering great flexibility, the DSR-1800 and the DSR-1600 are the perfect choice for today's demanding video production applications.
The DSR-1800 and the DSR-1600 employ the DVCAM format, the professional extension of the worldwide standard DV format. The DVCAM format uses 8-bit digital component recording with a 5:1 compression ratio and a sampling rate of 4:1:1 (for NTSC) / 4:2:0 (for PAL). The unique compression algorithm provides excellent picture quality and superb multi-generation performance. The DVCAM format has a wider track pitch of 15 μm (compared with 10 μm for the DV format) which gives higher reliability for professional editing.
It also offers superior digital audio performance, providing a wide dynamic range and excellent signal-to-noise ratio, comparable to CD quality. Alternative audio channel modes can be selected: a two-channel mode with 48 kHz/16-bit recording or a four-channel mode with 32 kHz/12-bit recording. DVCAM cassette tapes are available in two sizes: standard and mini. The standard-size cassette provides a recording time of up to 184 minutes while the mini-size cassette provides up to 40 minutes.
